Anenome Flowers and Vase

This pretty little vase and flowers is a file from   It was a lot of fun to put together although the leaves were a little tricky for me.  It took a few extra supplies, such as some skewers to hold the flowers, floral tape to wrap the skewers, glue gun for a little bit tighter hold in a couple places on the flowers, and I filled a sandwich baggie with a  handful of unpopped popcorn kernels to add a little weight to the  bottom of the vase for stability.  I created this as a birthday gift for a friend in lieu of real flowers

that would die in a weeks time. She was delighted with the gift!

Victorian house

So this adorable little Victorian house is a file from The file is called Midnight Manor and is designed as a haunted house for Halloween.  I just love house structures and all the Victorian details this file has so I changed the paper colors and I have a standard house. It has cutouts on the backside to place tea lights in.  The front windows are covered with vellum ( I actually used tracing paper because I discovered I was out of vellum while cutting this file) making the tealights able to light up the structure.   The top center roof is not glued on but sits comfortably on the middle tower so you can remove the center roof to place a tea light inside.  It took several hours to make and I’m happy with the outcome.  I feel like I can make small decorations for any holiday, season or occasion to embellish the house to suit my preference.  The biggest challenge was deciding on colors to ensure I had enough sheets of each color for the number of mats needed to cut the complete file.  Planning is everything! 😊

Walt’s RV

So my son is turning 21 today! And instead of making a cute card I decided to make him an RV!   The file came from and I have had the file for a couple years now and just haven’t made it. So this seemed like a great occasion.  This item is actually a box, and it’s called Walt’s RV on their website but I don’t know why.  Haha.  Anyway it turned out super cute  and I placed some gift cards inside the box.
